Warner Bros has named Chris McKay as the director for the sequel to The LEGO Movie.

McKay was animation co-director on the first film, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller on directing duties.

The film’s previous directors will now take on a producing role for the sequel, while Michelle Morgan and Jared Stern are reportedly writing a treatment for the next installment, reports Deadline.
